Liberty Cu horseshoe nails have outdated the rest, because they are better for all horses, every day. They are the first horseshoe nails in 1000 years which do more than hold the horseshoe on.

Liberty Cu horseshoe nails offer far more protection than traditional horseshoe nails because they are copper coated. The copper coating does not rust. On top of that Liberty Cu horseshoe nails are extra smooth and extra sharp, so there is less damage to the horn material inside the hoof and less chipping on the outside. The copper coating does not wear off, so the protection lasts the entire shoeing cycle.

Unlike to what you might think, the innovative copper coated Liberty Cu nails are not a luxury item. Maintaining strong, sound hooves are equally important to all horses, including every riding horse that is used for recreational purposes.

Additional information

In 2015 the Royal Kerckhaert Horseshoe Factory introduced the copper coated Liberty Cu horseshoe nails to the equine world. Liberty Cu horseshoe nails are a major step towards healthier hooves in the world of farriery.

Every time a farrier drives a nail into a horses hoof, this damages the horn material. And because traditional horseshoe nails tend to rust, this weakens the hoof wall even more. Kerckhaert are the first to deal with this once and for all, by effectively applying a special copper coating (Cu) onto the top quality Liberty horseshoe nails.

When Liberty Cu horseshoe nails are used on a daily basis, most farriers will notice that, unlike with traditional horseshoe nails, horses hooves stay in great condition. The horn material at the white line will be elastic and healthy, with less staining around the nail holes. Also the hoof wall holds its strength. After several shoeings with Liberty Cu these benefits become even more obvious.

Important to the horse owner

Your farrier is a skilled craftsman who has studied and specialized in horses hooves for years. That is why you can trust him to know exactly which horseshoes and nails will be best suited for your horse.
The fact that he uses the innovative, copper coated Liberty Cu horseshoe nails shows you he is fully up to date in his craftsmanship and he cares for the health of your horse, even when he is not around.
